HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!
I played a trick on Mommy last night, and it worked!
Sometimes Tipper and I lick too much fur off ourselves, and cough and cough until it comes out. Mommy doesn’t like cleaning up wet hair out of our stomachs; I don’t know why.
Mommy got this medicine that she gives us when we’re trying to “hack up a hairball”, as Mommy calls it.
Tipper hates it, but I love it! I love it a lot.
So last night, I decided I wanted some. I waited until Mommy was almost asleep, then I started coughing and coughing.
Mommy sat up and petted me until I stopped.
When she was almost asleep again, I coughed and coughed and coughed.
This time, she sat up and turned on the light. So I sat up and stared at the medicine and licked my chops. My amazing mind trick worked, and she gave me some of the medicine! I might try that trick again.
Mostly, I’ve been helping, though.
I monitor her telebision so she doesn’t watch anything too scary.
I help Tipper guard the house.
And at night, before I make Mommy go to bed, I help her brush her teef.
Mommy says I’m a clever girl. I think so, too.
